  • Beat me! Throw me down and beat me, you dirty little coward!
  • In this scene, Myrtle is in the garage shouting and scolding loudly at her husband, George Wilson, after he locks her in their bedroom.  Myrtle's cream-colored dress symbolizes her desire to be wealthy and old money.  This also explains why she has an affair with Tom and is hanging out with his rich friends.  
  • After fighting with her husband in the garage, Myrtle runs out into the street waving her hands in the air, screaming. A car then comes out from the darkness, not stopping. 
  • The yellow Rolls Royce is Gatsby's car coming back from New York but Daisy is driving it.  This is symbolic because she is and unfaithful person who wants to be old money when she is not and then Daisy who is old money hits her in Gatsby's new money car.  She is so worked up from the fight in the hotel room that she is driving recklessly and doesn't notice Myrtle run out into the street which results in Daisy hitting her.  Gatsby takes the wheel and they speed off.  
  • In this scene, Myrtle is laying on a table and Tom is seen standing over her, looking at her. The policeman next to him is taking names of who saw the accident and who was there.  Wilson is standing in the garage looking at the table and then back at the people while holding onto the door post.   
  • Once they get back to the Buchanan house, Jordan asks Nick if he wants to come in but Nick declines her offer because he has had enough of all of them for one day.  He sits on the front porch with his head in his hands and waits for his taxi to come get him. Nick is very overwhelmed and confused in this moment because he doesn't know who killed Myrtle or if it was intentional.  
  • Gatsby steps out between two bushes where he had been hiding, spying on Daisy to make sure Tom doesn't hurt her.  Nick and Gatsby start talking and  Gatsby says that Daisy was driving but he will take the blame.  Gatsby only cared about Daisy and he was telling Nick how she was feeling the whole time.  Nick says he hates Gatsby at this point in the story and Gatsby's pink suit was adding to it.  Nick goes up to the house to check if there is any commotion between Daisy and Tom.  He tells Gatsby there isn't anything happening and that he should go home but Gatsby stays to watch her and Nick leaves.  This shows how done with Gatsby Nick is.
